Royal Jordanian Launches Non-Stop Flight Between Amman and Kiev

Royal Jordanian Airlines has launched its first regular twice-weekly non-stop flight between Amman, Jordan, and Kiev, Ukraine.

The airline will operate the Embraer 195 aircraft between the two cities, departing from Amman on Sundays and Wednesdays, and from Kiev on Mondays and Thursdays.

Samer Majali, president and CEO of Royal Jordanian, said: "The twice-weekly flight will service the active commercial movement between the two countries, as well as businessmen, students and tourists, and will stimulate relations between Jordan and Ukraine. The company opened this route after conducting feasibility studies, particularly given Ukraine's strategic geographic position in eastern Europe."
